Cedar Hill Police Department officers helped in teen's birthday celebration

A simple act of kindness teamed up some police officers and a young teen in Cedar Hill.


This month, La'Ron Harper brought decorations, including balloons, to celebrate her nephew's 14th birthday.

But when she was driving on her way, the decorations and balloons were flaying here and there, and it was then police officers stepped in to help her.


Harper said, "I thought, 'Well, we're close enough to the house. It will be fine.' Well, it turns out we were not close enough to the house, and we started losing decorations along the way."


Then suddenly, police officers decided to tag along to wish Kennedy Cumbo a happy birthday.


Cumbo walked out of the front door to see his aunt, with several officers to wish him on his birthday.


Cedar Hill PD Lt. Paul Sandefur said, "I don't know if he knew she was coming or not because he seemed surprised when he came out the front door with three squad cars blaring their horns and yelling over their speaker's happy birthday."


Cumbo said he was kind of shocked and had no idea of what was going on.


This gave that group a chance to reunite on Saturday.


Cumbo's aunt said it very important for us to showcase that in these strange times also, not all police officers are bad, and not all African American young men are bad.
